Fabrication is underway for Canyon Light, a suspended artwork commissioned by Southern Utah School of Business, located in Cedar City, UT. The installation is designed to add a luminous, colorful component in the refined and creative architectural interior spaces of the SUU Business Building.
Visitors to the building will have an opportunity to experience a journey through the artwork, with its variety of shapes and profiles providing an engaging and constantly transforming experience for the viewer. Dichroic film applied to the acrylic panels mimics the effects of the filtered and diffused light in the canyon. Radiating color, reflection and refracted light, each panel has a distinct and unique effect on the interior spaces of the Business Building.
Canyon Light will be visible from a variety of perspectives throughout the building. When viewed from the second floor balcony, the gaps between sets of suspended panels will offer views across the open atrium space of the Business Building. From the first floor, looking up towards the suspended works, the distinct profiles of the pairs of panels will be clearly apparent. Ambient light and the perspective of the viewer are all factors that will transform the appearance and experience of Canyon Light, throughout the day and evening.
The SUU Building is expected to open at the beginning of the 2018 academic year. ‘Canyon Light’ will be a significant enhancement of architectural space.
